Mount Everest, Ama Dablam 6812mAn expedition to Ama Dablam is more than just a climb. It’s a journey into the heart of the Himalayas. Located in the Khumbu valley of Nepal, only 12 km from the summit of Mount Everest, Ama Dablam demands Ama dablam, from the base camp!the attention of every passer-by. Soaring ridgelines and super-steep faces guard the summit from all but the experienced climber. From the summit you are surrounded by a vista of peaks like no other, five of the highest six peaks in the world are clearly visible.


The first ascent (via the SW ridge) of Ama Dablam was not made until the mid 1950’s by a strong NZ/USA team. The north ridge fell to a talented French team as late as 1979. In recent years many parties have successfully climbed the mountain, with nearly all ascents via the original SW ridge route.

Mount Everest, Ama Dablam 6812mAmadablam, on the way! Our ascent will be made via the conventional SW ridge route, a technical route that requires 3500 m of fixed ropes and three camps above base camp. The climb usually completed in less than four weeks; however we do build in an extra week in case of exceptionally bad weather. The climbing on the route involves pure rock climbing on exquisite granite followed by mixed snow and rock climbing. The last section to the summit involves ice climbing followed by a long steep snow slope: often ropes are employed all the way to the summit. The reasons for this are three-fold: safety, speed and success.


Mountain got (Titar), on the way!This trip requires a high level of fitness and a few additional items that the normal trekking kit will not contain. Any trip to altitude can be potentially dangerous so every medical and technical precaution is taken to ensure your safety and success. Comprehensive medical equipment, such as oxygen, Gammov bag and specialised drugs will be on hand. Ropes and other technical safety equipment are also provided: we do not skimp on kit. Safety of the entire group (including kitchen and climbing staff and porters) comes first.

Tengboche Monastery, on the way to Amadablam Due to the technical nature of the route, ropes will be fixed for most of the climb above camp one. Although we can brush-up your skills at base camp, a good working knowledge of abseiling and use of mechanical ascenders (jumars) is mandatory: prior experience is required. This might involve a couple of weekend sessions at your local cliff or bridge combined with some other general mountain knowledge. Objective danger on the SW Ridge route is minimal, ice cliffs do not threaten it, the snow slopes are generally stable (with minimal avalanche risk), the rock is of good quality and the mountain is below the reach of jet stream winds. The Summit Amadablam and get free Nature Trail's T-Shirt!route is extremely exposed and mistakes with rope work can be unforgiving. We have a strong local climbing sherpa team to help us on the mountain. They greatly assist in your success by helping with load carrying and the fixing of ropes. The whole team will be involved in the fixing of rope and the smooth running of the expedition but their primary concerns are client safety, service and success. Our guide will be climbing with you at all times. Our guide will ensure your safety and make decisions regarding safety and weather, they also assist in carrying group gear between camps. You are then left to carry only your personal gear between camps.


At the top of the AmadablamA typical team would consist of four clients, two helper Sherpas, two climbing Sherpas, a camp one cook, base camp cook, one kitchen boy and a message runner. We run our trips on very low ratios. We use a lot of sherpa power and we have exceptional food in base camp and on the mountain. Our tents are all high quality expedition style tents and roomy enough to enable you to enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep. If you want the best chance of success – this is it! We provide the highest quality commercial operation available on Ama Dablam.
